Racketeering Charges About To Be Filed Against Trump, His 3 Older Children, Investigative Reporter Says

On Monday, it was revealed that Donald Trump’s longtime accounting firm, Mazars USA, terminated their business relationship with the Trump Organization and said that it could no longer vouch for the financial statements it prepared for the former president because they are “inaccurate.” The news comes as the New York attorney general accused the company of fraudulently misrepresenting the value of its assets.

Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist David Cay Johnston, one of the few reporters to obtain Trump’s tax returns, is predicting that Trump’s family business will be charged with racketeering in the next coming days.

During an interview with CNN’s John Berman on Tuesday, Johnston said “that Mazars is helping the prosecutors put together the, what I expect, will be a racketeering case.”

He added that a New York state racketeering case would be filed “against Trump, the Trump Organization, Allen Weissingberg and probably Donald’s three older children,” referring to Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump.

“Donald Trump will be indicted on a state racketeering charge, I’m confident of that,” he said later in the interview. “And perhaps in Westchester County, by Mimi Rocah, the new D.A. there and in Fulton County, Georgia, by Fani Willis, looking into voter fraud and now has a grand jury just for the purpose of investigating Trump’s effort to interfere with the Georgia vote count,” Johnston added.
